“Compli is at the forefront of the latest development in Governance, Risk and Compliance — Compliance Obligation Management,” said Childers. “Organizations not only face mitigating risk from regulatory obligations, they are also being charged to document, track, analyze and report on their contractual and social-responsibility obligations as well. Compli has long been known for bringing automated efficiencies and increased compliance-related protection to small to mid-sized organizations, and now it is poised to become the market leader in the emerging Compliance Obligation Management arena as well. I am excited to lead them there.”
